Things To Do

Saturday, a visit to the Green Flea Markets down in Davies Park.

Take a City Cat along the beautiful Brisbane River either upstream to the University of Queensland or down river into the City. Best stop is North Quay walk up the stairs and you are practically in the Queen St Mall.

Gallery of Modern Art, QAG, QSL, QPAC, Science Centre and Museum are all located a short walk from Minto. GOMA is home to an interesting modern permanent Indigenous art collection and great travelling shows. It is connected to the rest of the Cultural Precinct, which includes the refurbished Queensland State Library, the Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) the Science Centre and Museum and the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).

For sports fans, there is AFL in Winter, and Cricket in Summer at the GABBA. This world famous (for its spelling anyway!) venue is in South Brisbane and home to the Brisbane Lions. Take a bus or a cab as it is a little far to walk.

If youre into Rugby (of either code) theres Suncorp Stadium.

Avoid the traffic and parking hassles and walk all the way down Montague Rd then up the stairs under the William Jolly Bridge then follow the crowds(about 35 min walk).

There are always interesting shows and expos on at The Brisbane Convention Centre, which is only a short walk or bus ride from Minto. Check local tourism guides for whats on.

Southbank Parkland

Theres got to be good things said about a Council that donates prime river frontage real estate back to the people! Southbank is the site of the 1988 Brisbane Expo, which some people say put Brisbane on the map! It is now a fabulous leisure precinct of shops, restaurants, parklands and even a beach! A great place to visit the markets on Saturday.
